Notes

All songs were generously and thoroughly rockingly recorded by each band. They were given a copy of the book, told to write a song about "supermodels, kung-fu, or candy, or all of the above," and then they went wild.

And, as for the novel:

Candy Cohen is just the girl next door—that is, if the girl next door happens to be a college freshman and a part-time model with a wicked sense of humor. She and her best friend Velma jaunt around the world, flirt with rock stars and power brokers, and party it up in countries that don’t even know the meaning of the word.

But all that changes one night, when Candy turns down the rich and powerful Preston Reign’s invitation to dinner. Suddenly, she finds herself being stalked by a guy who never takes “no” for an answer. Drawn into his web, out of control for the first time in her life, Candy is on the run -— dodging bullets, blowing up buildings, being chased through exotic cities, and fighting back with the only weapons she has: Velma, her natural wit, and her stiletto heels.

Candy in Action is about the lonely side of being popular, and the dark side of being the hottest girl in class. It’s action, it’s glamour, and it’s that best-friends-forever feeling where you’re on top of the world and anything could happen.
